When someone asks me “Where do you live these days?”
My current answer is: “Good Question, I don’t know.”
In the last three months, I’ve been away from the condo that I own A LOT. Ok, maybe you haven’t noticed … I’ve STUNK at keeping up with the blog recently and I know it. Not that things in my life haven’t been ‘blog worthy’. Some things have been, but the trouble is that it’s been traveling ALOT, and when I get home, I really don’t want to do anything. I mean, did you really want me to update you every time snow made it impossible to get around in Boston? Or for that matter, every time I stuck in Connecticut? Or clocking time back in Wichita (Ok, that really was Blog Worthy since it was the first time being there since I moved out – and even started this blog two and a half years ago, but we’ll get to that). The problem was, I was short of any kind of ‘down time’. I could be writing the blog, but there is just times you want to shut the brain down for a while – and I have had lots of those times. The problem also was — I just wasn’t home. I was traveling alot.
As it turns all, all that travel is going to stop, immediately. No, I’m not kidding. I am going to spend the forseeable future supporting one plant …
Just one plant …
(Here Comes the Punchline)
… in Los Angeles.
Sometime this weekend, the pup and I will climb into the car and head west. We are going to stop off for a few days in Wichita to get some work done, the continue on to the LA Basin. There, we will be housed temporarily until the plant I am supporting fills at least one if not up to three positions we recently lost.
I actually just found out about the move an hour or two ago, and I have reached the ‘this is so insane it is funny’ point. I had just got done with a good conversation with my boss on Monday how I was hoping that I could slow down my time away from home – and he thought that meant he would have to convince me to go. It’s a need, it’s the right thing to do, and … it’s a road trip. Two actually.
And the pup comes with!
